Abstract : The report summarizes all the work accomplished since 1 March 1963 under Contract N00014-71-C-0106 and its predecessor, Contract Nonr-4099(00). The main achievements of the research have already been published in a series of 20 Scientific Notes; these notes--with their abstracts, where available--are listed. Investigations that have not been covered in a Scientific Note are cataloged and briefly described. Finally some comments are offered as to the probable future relevance to the mission of the U.S. Navy of research in atmospheric electricity. (Author)
